Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.
He’s the newly drafted quarterback.
Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.
I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Prepared to conquer the world.
The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched—until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.
After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his attitude, his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.
That doesn’t stop me from wanting him.
He’s meant to be a distraction—something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.
I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.
None of that matters.
But maybe it should.
Rules aren’t meant to be broken.
Or are they?

What do you get when you take a hot as hell quarterback and expose him to a new athletic trainer intern who happens to be the coach's daughter? You get one hot, forbidden romance! Kim's Karr's Hot Stuff was hot, sexy and sweet-with the bonus of being about a football hero.
Lucas kind of broke my heart in this book in the beginning. He didn't have the best attitude and had been dealt a hand he didn't want to play. He had a past, one that somewhat hobbled him, and watching him grow through that was great. He was a little more innocent in some respects than I was anticipating, and I found that refreshing. Was he the stereotypical hot quarterback who never had to TRY to get the girl? A little. But Strawberry Fields sure changed that.
I liked Gillian. I really did. I thought she was fun and sweet. I admired her spirit and her passion. There was almost a slight awkwardness to her in a way that also worked. But I loved her drive. Her purpose-that she knew it and worked for it. I think she grew up quite well in the book.
There is absolutely a connection forged between these two from the moment they meet. Their meeting had me cringing and almost face palming but it totally worked for them. I like that they had a somewhat of a slow build. I liked that their relationship wasn't perfect, they had issues to work through. That's part of relationships in life so that felt very real and authentic here. I enjoyed the journey they went on together. Their sexy times were sexy, but I loved seeing them expose their vulnerabilities to one another.
I thought the writing in this book was strong. I feel it flowed well. I didn't love an action by one of the characters but I'd consider it a spoiler so I'm not going to go there. As I mentioned, this book seemed real. I felt like I could go to watch a football game and see Lucas and Gillian there, and I loved that. This book was hot and sweet, the perfect addition to a football Sunday. I would recommend this title.
